Artist Turns Snatches Of Conversation Into Funny Sketches

funny

Avner Geller is an artist and illustrator born in the United States and raised in Israel, who currently works at Dreamworks Animation as a visual development artist. He has worked on popular animated films like Mr. Peabody and Sherman, The Penguins of Madagascar, and Trolls. Currently residing in Los Angeles, California, Geller likes to spend his free time drawing sketches based on snippets of conversation he has accidentally overheard. It just goes to show that you can draw inspiration from the unlikeliest of places. This is how he described the conception of his series of illustrations titled “#ThingsThatiHear” on Bored Panda:

“The idea for “#ThingsThatiHear” arrived when I was visiting a cookware store in Los Angeles. A young woman was looking at her phone and gave a big sigh, turned to her friend decisively and exclaimed, “He wants to go to Bali. But I say Fiji!” I couldn’t help but laugh. The absurdity of this “first world problem” was too much. From that moment on I started to catch all sorts of real-life conversations, that eventually turned into these illustrations.”

The protagonists in the funny sketches are everyday people: co-workers, friends, neighbors, and online acquaintances, and these illustrations serve to showcase the way people behave and the things they say when they think no-one is listening. Here are 25 examples of Geller’s best work.
